If you’re after a holiday with plenty of sun, sea and swimming, the Gambia may not be the first destination that springs to mind, but a stay at the Senegambia Beach Hotel will prove truly unforgettable.
Set in 20 acres of tropical gardens, the Senegambia Beach Hotel is one of the best-known hotels in the Gambia. With two swimming pools plus one for the kids, and a wealth of sport facilities, you can soak up the glorious African sun however you like – practise your backhand on the tennis court, have a round of mini-golf, or simply work on your tan while dipping in and out of the pool. The daily bird feeding, which happens every morning and attracts monitor lizards, monkeys and a fascinating range of bird species, is unmissable for wildlife lovers.
Kololi Beach is perfect for reclining on a sun lounger and getting stuck into a book, and there’s a beach bar with a stunning view – all that relaxing can be thirsty work, after all.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and fitted with everything you could need for a restful stay. All have air-conditioning, TV, fully-equipped bathrooms and a private balcony or terrace. The main buffet restaurant provides breakfast and dinner, there’s a weekly barbecue by the pool, and there’s also the Portofino pizzeria onsite. Senegambia Beach Hotel is conveniently located for venturing further afield, as you’ll find a wealth of restaurants just a short walk away.
